If this 4GB Kingston on ebay UK is genuine seller risks a loss

leave a comment »

If this 4GB Kingston flash drive is genuine then seller auctionden risks making a loss on the sale by listing it at auction. If, on the other hand, it turns out to be counterfeit then it will be fake capacity and corrupts files.

We advise everyone who buys flash memory items to test them with the free program h2testw irrespective of where they were purchased – otherwise you run the risk of data loss and corruption.

Report your fake if testing confirms you have purchased fake capacity flash memory on ebay.

We suspect this 16GB USB flash drive sold on ebay is fake

with one comment

We think this 16GB USB flash drive sold by candler1614 on ebay USA is fake capacity and corrupts files. The drive is marked Micro Vault – the name used by Sony for their flash drives – but there is no model on the Sony site that looks like this. We think these may have come from a fraudulent supplier in China.

We are sure this 32GB flash drive on ebay Australia is fake

We are sure that this 32GB USB flash drive listed on ebay Australia by seller crofty2906 will turn out to be fake capacity. A fake capacity flash drive corrupts files. We have never seen genuine flash drives with a capacity sticker – only fake capacity ones. Genuine flash drives of small capacities sometimes have nothing on them to indicate capacity, otherwise the capacity is either printed on the drive or engraved on the connector. We are certain that this seller bought from a fraudulent supplier.

We advise everyone who buys flash memory items to test them with the free program h2testw irrespective of where they were purchased – otherwise you run the risk of data loss and corruption.
